Palm Mountain Resort and Spa has timed its new look with the 20th annual Palm Springs Walk of the Inns on Dec. 10.

During the self-guided walking tour of the downtown area's boutique hotels and historic inns, participants will be able to see Palm Mountain's recent renovation for themselves.

A new lobby, banquet area, and set of rooms have joined this longtime, cosmopolitan Palm Springs hotel, which maintains a dynamite central location that provides its guests access to many attractions, restaurants, and shopping within walking distance.

The old world style rooms are spacious, many with a private patio or balcony, and others overlook the pool, the gardens with lemon and orange trees or enjoy a panoramic view of the San Jacinto mountains.

“Location, location, location,” says General Manager Tim Ellis with a smile. “We are steps from famed Palm Canyon Drive, but back against the mountains for solitude and quiet. We constantly hear we are a fabulous value. We are not super luxurious, but we are certainly not a motel.”

The Botanical Benefits Day Spa is on site, with an entrance on the grounds, featuring massage, facials, wraps and polishes. The Mini Eye Lift and Epicuren Signature Facial are two fabulous choices. The sports massage is perfect for hikers and bikers.

Enjoy packages like Stay 1 Night with Matchbox Dining Credit, Hotel Room & Spa Package, or Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Package, according to Ellis. Hikers and bikers enjoy this hotel for its convenience to the trails. There is also access to Palm Springs fitness facilities and classes about 1.5 miles away.
